JOHN MAYER! Are you friggin serious? Mr. Douchetastic? The one that has been Twittering nonstop for the last week about the most absolutely insane BS EVER, while MANY people are still feeling disbelief and sadness over Michael dying?
Pleaseeeee tell me it's not true, that John Mayer will not be there douching the place up.

I thought Elizabeth Taylor, David Gest and Madonna were going to be there? What about Mark Lester, Chris Tucker, Teddy Riley, and Macaulay Culkin?

Weird list. Michael hardly knew many of them, except from newspaper articles and never even met some of them.... What's up? Absent from even making a condolence comment are 60% of the music industry - what's going on?

Why is John Mayer going to be there??? What the heck does he have to do with MJ? I guess he's missing the spotlight since he dumped Jennifer Aniston. So not looking forward to Sharpton rant and rave. He makes me sick. I'll be watching just to see the fiasco that my tax dollars are paying for. Gotta get something out of it

Oh My Goodness    

There should be a balance of all different races at the tribute. Michael was a man of all colors. I am quite disappointed to see just so many black african american celebs in this lineup. Who put this service together? Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson?

Michael would not have liked this one bit ................

I read that Quincy Jones was not going to go as he wanted to remember Michael as he knew him, etc. Little surprised at the list of participants myself......Kobe? Why not Michael Jordan instead since he was in the Jam video with him. And what about Eddie Murphy? I would imagine that both Diana Ross and Dionne Warwick will be part of the invited friends and family. What about JT and Ne-Yo? Interesting line up to say the least.

Brooke dated Michael back in the Day.

Mariah & Micahel were labelmates and friends. In fact, Michael helped Mariah survive the Motolla/Sony break.

Lionel/Stevie Wonder & Smokey - longtime friends & colleagues.

Usher & Shaheen - Michael saw them as the next generation & supported them.

WHERE IS DIANA?

WHERE IS LIZ?

WHERE IS LIZA MINNELLI?

WHERE IS JANET?
